It's been over a year since Lamar Odom suffered a near fatal overdose in a Las Vegas brothel, an incident which lead to prolonged hospitalization. Now, the basketball player (best known for being married to Khloé Kardashian) has reportedly checked himself into a San Diego rehab facility—though that doesn't necessarily mean he isn't sober.

Despite being photographed drinking and being thrown off a plane for intoxication in the months following his hospitalization, a source tells E! that Lamar is still sober:

"It was his own decision. He wanted to work on his mental and physical health for the next chapter of his life. He has not fallen off the wagon, but he understands the importance of maintaining his sobriety."

Neither Lamar nor his team have commented on his rehabilitation stay. Check back in for updates.
